Today, at exactly 23:59:60 UTC, we will be experiencing a leap second. Whether it breaks the internet or not, Google Android is celebrating with the help of Droga5 and Cesar Kuriyama, the man behind the "1 Second Everyday" app, which allows you to record a daily, one-second diary of your life. They've created Leap Second 2015, a gallery that showcases how people around the world are enjoying the one extra second of their lives today.

Through the 1 Second Everyday app available at Google Play, people can submit their extra second, which will then be vetted and added to the Leap Second Gallery. There, viewers can witness other celebratory seconds around the world, and search for them by tag such as #fun, #travel, #baby, #summer and #happy.
